First of all, the smell of this place-ugh! The entire hostel part smells dank, moldy, and wet. The reception is barely helpful and when you ask for advice or travel questions they look annoyed. No kitchen or any place to store food. Wouldn't recommend.

Funny Farm is really just a run-down hotel attached to a nicer hotel, and while the amenities seemed like they could have been great, they were not in very good shape. There was no kitchen or refrigerator for us to use, and the tennis court, basketball court and beach volleyball court were all begging for maintenance. The pool wasn't open... More

WOW! Cannot say enough about this hostel! My friends and I did not get to the hostel until 24 hours after we were supposed to but the woman at the front desk did not make us pay for the night we should have been there and was confused as to why we would have to. Most places would make you... More

We went for three days at the Funny Farm hostel and I think it was the best option for visiting Interlaken. The people at the entrance and the bar were really nice and helpful and the hall a nice and warm place to meet other guests. The room, on the other side, could be improved. The beds were ok and...

I booked this hostel for me and my friend Juan at the last possible moment. When I arrived at 'Interlaken Ost' train station, I noticed that on the reservation I had no street address. Luckily at the tourist information centre at the station, they directed me and gave me a free map to get to the hostel. So if you... More

The hostel room is incredibly basic (wire framed bunk beds, just one bathroom). The cost is outrageous (but normal for Interlaken and Switzerland). The key here is the location. You can walk from the hotel/hostel to the train station to take you up the mountain and that's the key to being in Interlaken. Get up the mountain and spend all... More

Stayed at Funny Farm backpackers hostel for two nights while visiting Brienz & the Alps. The lobby and corridors look almost exquisite, however the rooms are average and lack any character whatsoever. The triple room with a bunk bed, cupboard, desk & chair got a bit cramped once the three of us put our bags down. Bathroom was tiny, with... More

Did I seriously make an account just to warn other travellers of my horrific experience at this so-called "hotel"? Yes. Yes I did. When I first entered Funny Farm Hotel (more like hostel, will be explained later) with my mother and brother, I was intrigued because it actually looked pretty nice, and the lady at the front desk was quite...

We stayed here for a couple of days while hiking the alps/skydiving. It's a great spot to settle in for the evening and relax/ have some drinks. They have entertainment in the evening and a pool to hang out at as well. The sleeping quarters are pretty much as would be expected. Nothing that will blow your hair back but... More
